KAC at the Choirs Go Pop festival held on 12/06/2022 at the Theatre Royal, Wakefield. Although non-competitive we performed in front of a panel of judge’s and received fantastic feedback on our performance.
They said we had to be quiet backstage before we went on but they didn’t say we couldn’t dance. KAC enjoying themselves dancing to Titanium sung by Local Vocals from Ossett.
